Designed and hand-built in the USA by the American Carver Artists, this highly detailed, dimmable light is perfect on any bedside table, nightstand, nursery, meditation space or office desk. Our beautiful light is made of American Basswood (outer frame) and Birch wood (inner panels and back). The glowing fourth layer is laser etched on edge-lit acrylic, creating a spectacular image of the Bodhi Tree’s illuminated leaves, glowing crown and sanskrit OM symbol, gently reflecting onto the Buddha and the surrounding Lotus Blossoms. We designed the individual leaves in such a way to allow the laser cutter to focus at different depths over multiple passes to create a diamond cut. This creates a refraction of light producing a 3D effect that must be seen in person to fully appreciate the effect!



We offer three separate options for the front face plate (along the bottom front panel) with the first option being a blank plate without any lettering or words. The second option offers the word BREATHE (as pictured above), backed with a parchment vellum, adding a soft glow to BREATHE and the third option is to customize the face plate with your choice of word, also backed with a parchment vellum, adding a soft glow to your chosen word when lit.

If you are interested in the customized option, please follow these guidelines when ordering:

  • The custom word cannot exceed 12 characters in length.
  • The custom word will be in all capitals in the same font shown.
  • Add your custom word in the Notes section of the Shopping Cart.
  • A proof will be emailed to you for your approval (proofs are PDF files).
  • Personalized pieces take an extra 24 hours to manufacture.

The light is lit by a 4” LED cool light strip (with almost no heat exchange), attached to an in-line dimmer switch, allowing you to adjust the intensity and effect.


Our “Enlightenment” Shadow box depicts a stylized version of the Tree of Life or a Bodhi Tree which the Buddha sat beneath to obtain enlightenment. As the Buddha touched one hand to the Earth, he transcended to a state of oneness with all things in all universes and became an ascended master. This began with his breath and the focusing of his attention upon his breath. Regardless of religion, all humans share a commonality in the suffering of existence, and in today’s world, this so often manifests as stress or generalized anxiety. We offer this elegant handmade light as a reminder to be in the eternal moment of being, one with your breath, one with the potential of who you are already becoming.
